Scrapbook Improv: January Edition!

by Lain Ehmann on January 24, 2013


We did it again! Three layouts in 90 minutes!

Last night we had a record crowd keeping us company as we improv’d LIVE. It was wacky — broken arrows, pop culture, prizes, and more — yahoo!

I was working with Gossamer Blue’s January kit. It’s still available, so if you want to grab one, you can get it here.

Here are all the goodies in that kit:


Lots of fun stuff!! Here’s how I put it to use:

Layout #1: Pop Culture

Subject/Title: “Pop Culture.” (I took artistic license and created a page about my dad!)

Technique: Stamping

Journaling: Computer-generated

Background: Cardstock

Embellishments: Border

Notes: All products from Gossamer Blue January kit except stamp (Sodalicious, from Gossamer Blue Nov. kit), white cardstock, ink (Stampin’ Up!), and white title letters (Thickers from American Crafts).


Layout #2: Eight

Subject/Title: “Things That Make You Go AAAH!”

Technique: Diecuts

Journaling: List

Background: Cardstock

Embellishments: Tag/label

Product Notes: Everything from Gossamer Blue Jan. kit except “Eight” title cut from SIlhouette (design by Loni Stevens) and green ink (Stampin’ Up!).


Layout #3: Everyday You…

Subject/Title: “Every Day You Make Me Laugh”

Technique: Distressing

Journaling: Song lyrics

Background: Patterned paper

Embellishments: Labels


I’m creating a few more layouts with this amazing kit, but I wanted to go ahead and share these.

Stay tuned – and thanks to Gossamer Blue for sponsoring Scrapbook Improv! We’ll see you next month on Feb. 27.


Here are two more layouts created with Gossamer Blue’s kit:

Layout #4: Related!?

Product notes: everything on layout came from the GB Jan. kit, with the exception of the letter stickers (Thickers/American Crafts) and the twine used on the button (Darice, I think!)


Layout #5: Breathe

Product notes: All products from GB’s Jan. kit.
